Managed to get it to install now it goes to the startup screen and now it says:

"Logon Message

The system cannot log you on due to the following error:

The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

Please try again or consult your system administrator"

Those errors I would attribute to either a bad image or a non-genuine disc being used for the slipstream.

It's ok, turns out the virus that i had on my computer had worked it's way onto the Slipstreamed Windows CD i used.

I've managed to fix it though, and my Windows XP is now working.

Thank you very much for all your help Troy.

I scan checked the Slipstreamed DVD that i made up and sections of the .dll files contained within had the Win32/Ramnit virus. I think it is because NLite put the windows installation files on the desktop first before it added the driver then burned it onto a DVD.

So i discarded the Slipstreamed DVD and then made sure that my current windows installation had no traces of the virus and created a new DVD which i then did a windows repair install with it to get a clean system.
